The Sudbury Star
Brian Namanny grew up playing the legendary tabletop game Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots in his youth, so he knows full well that people of a certain age will have visions of that iconic classic dancing in their brains when Real Steel hits movie screens around the world on Oct. 7.
” I did play with it,” Namanny says with a laugh, during the Fan Expo Canada event in Toronto on the weekend.
However, he says the design of the robots wasn’t exactly inspired by the iconic 1970s game, which saw players pitting a red robot against a blue robot in a boxing ring.
Obi-Wan Kenobi, Plo Koon, Leonrdo, Peter Pan, Johnny Test, Fred Flinstone, and many more all stop by today for a chat…of course these characters all come from the even bigger characgter of James Arnold Taylor, who stops by to talk Clone Wars, voice acting, his one man show, and much much more.
Wayne also share about his journey through the Toronto Fan Expo where he ran down multiple interviews with a member of the 501st, a behind the scenes look at the Blu Ray release of Star Wars, a robot handler from Real Steel, and then Wayne does what Darth Vader could not do…Wayne finds the droid he is looking for and interviews Anthony Daniels.
Wayne also shares his experience from his prescreening of Episode 1 of Season 4 from the Clone Wars. It is great stuff from our feild reporter Wayne today.
